Often quite humorous film which purports to speak about cultural mores and their decline; advises us to be wary of pornography which may appear at the local newsstand, malt shop or drugstore. In reaction to perception of substantial growth in the distribution of pornographic material. Homosexuality is considered pornographic per se.

Sid's remake of The Terrible Truth is, in many ways, superior to it, if only because by the mid-sixties there were a lot more ways for kids to get themselves into trouble. This is a warning about the path of casual drug usage leading to "the point of no return" and the user being permanently lost to society.

The American tradition of the buffet supper is shown in its simple preparation. A "must" for the homemaker or hostess. One of the satellite films that accompanied Let's Give a Tea. See also Arranging the Tea Table.
